Our Mission
The Mildred Stevens Williams Memorial Library provides free library services for all members of our community, offering print and non-print materials, computer access, literary programs for children and adults, and facilities for educational, charitable, cultural and artistic endeavors thereby encouraging a love of reading and learning for all.

The Make and Mend Circle is a friendly group of fiber enthusiasts, who like to knit, weave, crochet, mend, and more! All levels of experience are encouraged to attend. This is a great environment in which to learn, share, or become inspired to create fiber projects. The group meets each month on the second Tuesday at 4pm and fourth Saturday at 2pm. 
   Upcoming dates are as follows:
   Saturday, March 25 at 2:00pm
   Tuesday, April 11 at 4:00pm; Saturday April 22 at 2:00pm


The Appleton Library relies on regular volunteer staff to ensure we are open to offer our services to the community. Without the support of our committed volunteers, this vital community resource could not continue. 

Please consider volunteering for a shift or portion of a shift.  Ask our staff or give us a call at 207-785-5656, email
